On Our Radar: Gossip Girl

Get ready for some eye candy...of the clothing persuasion. The CW's new fall show "Gossip Girl" may be set at a Manhattan private school, but the three main female characters, Blair, Serena, and Jenny, will not just be wearing plaid.

The show is styled by costume designer Eric Daman, who worked with Pat Field on "Sex and the City" (!). Of his vision for the Gossip Girls, he says: "These girls have become like muses, and they know these young New York designers are right there with the ones on the verge. It's almost like they discover them before the buyers discover them."

Each character has a unique style, be it sophisticated, laid-back, or quirky, but between the three of them, their wardrobes run the gamut from Alice Ritter, Lanvin, Vena Cava, Alexander Wang, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Peter Som to Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, and Chanel. In other words, lots and lots of clothes. Fab clothes.

As Blake Lively, who plays Serena, estimates, she tried on more than 500 dresses in two months between all the fittings for filming, publicity stills, and editorial shoots. Jelly much?

I haven't seen the pilot yet but I'm willing to give it a try because Schwartz created it. I just hope it's as good as all the hype makes it out to be.

Chuck is a bit of a dissapointment but I managed to get my hands on the pilot via a friend and the show is very, very good. Keeping almost exactly to the book. Congrats Mr Schwartz.

I read all the books, so I'm super excited for the TV show! The wardrobe looks amazing, but I don't think it will be influential in the way The O.C. was. I miss The O.C.!!

I've read all the books and they were by far my favorite teen lit novels! I LOVE IT! I am soooooo excited for this series and to see how it compares to the books. Although Jenny in the book isn't exactly who i pictured in the series. and yes they are all FAB

The books were sooo good... read them all cover to cover a few times... I'm already disappointed in the casting decisions... so it better be good b/c I will be the biggest critic... but I wont miss an episode!

Agreed with Scarlet. I loved Gossip Girl, own every one of the books, and got almost the entire student body of my school addicted (I'm thirteen, shut up, haha). But, my favourite characters were Vanessa and Dan. WHERE IS VANESSA? :'( And Jenny's supposed to have bouncy brown curls and huge...ahem...assets.

Those kids definitely look like they're going to be painful to watch but who knows. I like Schwartz, he made my OC so maybe I'll try this out.

I absolutely loved reading the books. Its kinda like my school, minus everyone having really fab clothes! Like just some-some dress up in designer, and that's on the down-low so its not over done. I just can't wait for it to show!!

i dont understand the comment about the actors not being as hot as the characters are written. I think the actress that plays blair is beyond beautiful and the guy playing the artsy dude (dan i think?) is very cute whereas in the book he never seemed particularly attractive
